  1. Hey! I have just finished my draft of the Mathematics SL Exploration. I showed it to my teacher and he said that I have to put double space and separate my calculations from the text. I told that if I do that I will exceed 12 pages. Though, he contends that it is okay. Is it really so? In Maths guide there is nothing on double space and all that stuff that we have in EE. Plus it is explicitly written that exploration must fit into the range of 6-12 pages. So I am confused whether I have to do what the guide is saying or what my teacher claims to be true. Help, please!
  2. For my IOP (Individual Oral Presentation) in English, I am doing Oedipus Rex. My topic is irony, specifically dramatic/situational and literary irony. There are lots of examples of them in the text. 1) What would be a good thesis statement? What should I focus on? 2) How do these types of irony affect the reader? 3) What is the purpose of having them in the text? Any greater implications/ extensions? 4) Is this a good topic even?:) Thank you so much!
  3. Here is my TOK presentation. I hope it would be helpful for you.
  4. I have not had a TOK lesson so I just want to know so I can started very soon.
  5. So my TOK teacher informed us that we're not permitted to submit the TOK presentation in a form of a video, only a PowerPoint presentation is accepted by the IB. I was a bit conflicted by this new information so I asked the librarian and he said that we're allowed, as long as we present ourselves throughout the video occasionally. And then for a confirmation, I inquired the IB Coordinator and she said we're not allowed to use a video as our final presentation. So should I follow what my IB Coordinator said or should I just do what's easier for me and make a video?
  6. Skip to these useful links: 1. ToK Presentation Guide by Keel 2. How to pick your TOK presentation title by Sandwich 3. Past TOK Presentations - what people chose ToK Presentation Guide Knowledge Issues 'Knowledge issue' i.e. issues about knowledge. It would be appropriate here to consider what ToK is all about. Many naturally assume that anything philosophically based is ToK. Understandable, but wrong. ToK is based around three main questions: What is knowledge? How is knowledge acquired? How do we know what we know? In layman’s terms, a knowledge issue is a very general question which aims to explore the problems of knowledge and evaluate it. Thus, knowledge issues are usually formatted in the form of ‘How do we know…?’ (this deals with question 3) However, there are other forms such as ‘What is the role of [a way of knowing] in [an area of knowledge]?’ (this deals with question 2). The knowledge issue must be stated in the introduction of your presentation as it is what your presentation is all about. For example, ‘To what extend is euthanasia ethical?’ is not a knowledge issue as it does not attempt to answer any of the three basic questions. ‘What ways of knowing can aid us in determining whether euthanasia is ethical?’ is not a well formed main knowledge issue because it is too specific, but at least it is a knowledge issue which deals with question 2. ‘Derived / Sub-’ Knowledge Issues These are knowledge issues in themselves but are connected to the main theme or main knowledge issue of the presentation and are possibly more focused in nature. For example, if your main knowledge issue is ‘What is the role of reason in History?’ a linking knowledge issue you could explore would be ‘How can we use Historical knowledge and inductive reasoning to predict future events?’ Your entire presentation should be based around the main knowledge issue and your main theme, but this sub-knowledge issue will allow you to explore one small aspect of 'the role of reason in History'. Claims and Counter-claims These are statements which are answers to your knowledge issue or sub-knowledge issues. They are then proceeded with evidence that supports such a point. In a way you can treat this as a paragraph in an essay, its structure is similar to the Point Evidence Explaination (PEE) or Statement Evidence eXplaination (SEX) which you may be familiar with. For example, for the knowledge issue ‘How do we know whether homosexuality is ‘natural’?’ A claim would be ‘deductive reasoning can tell us that it is not natural. the natural goal of all living things on earth is to reproduce; homosexuality does not allow the possibility of biological reproduction; therefore homosexuality is not 'natural'. A counter-claim would be that ‘deductive reasoning has its limitations in aiding us to determine whether homosexuality is natural.’ A discussion on the flaws of premises and reliability of deductive reasoning would then take place. Real Life Situation A real life situation is a realistic event, object or scenario that allows you to extract knowledge issues from it or supports your claim, a possible answer to your knowledge issue, by providing evidence. Real life situations can be drawn form anywhere ranging from the news to a book your read to an event that happened on the school playground. The possibilities are endless. Always try to make your real life situation related to you in some way; an incident which happened to you would be perfect. For example, for the knowledge issue ‘How reliable are our sense perceptions in determining what is true.’ For the claim/counter-claim: ‘Sense perceptions have their limitations in determining what is true,’ a real life situation would be, ‘The time when I was small and saw a ghost’s face appear in the curtain, upon further inspection, it was the folds of the curtain that had shaped into something similar to a man’s face. With the combination of flawed inductive reasoning, sense perception had hindered my knowledge of truth.’ Getting Started There are two main ways to get yourself started. is to find a real life situation which really interests you. You will extract one knowledge issue from it and simplify it to make it into your main knowledge issue your presentation will be based on. From there you find sub-knowledge issues and more real life scenarios to support your claims and counter claims. is to think of a broad knowledge issue, derive sub-knowledge issues which you wish to explore and find real life situations from there. There are many ways to do your presentation. It can be a simple lecture, a power point presentation, (if your are in pairs) a dialogue, a role play ect. The entire presentation should be like a verbal essay, with a focused introduction introducing the main issues, your methodology and how the presentation is structured. A claim should be given first, evidence to support the claim, then the limitations of the claim or a counter claim. The conclusion should sum up the main points in the presentation, it is an opportunity to give your opinion (great for scoring marks on the Knower’s Perspective criteria). Presenting As with any presentation, practice makes perfect. Make sure you can be heard clearly and that you articulate yourself well. The nice thing about the presentation is that since it is verbal it allows you to create a lot of links. E.g. ‘referring back to the first slide of the presentation’, ‘this scenario is very similar to the tax the government is enacting next month isn’t it?’ Create a set of notes to aid you so that you know what you will be discussing next. With power points do not cram everything onto the slide, each slide should only have a max of 5 points, they should not be sentences. When showing pictures, make sure it covers the entire slide, what’s the point of having a picture when it's of minute size shoved in the corner? Most people are scared of the questions at the end, don’t be. The questions asked by your teacher are there to help you. If you’ve missed something in your presentation that is key to answering the knowledge issue, this is the opportunity to gain back marks. If you can’t answer the question simply make a statement or give an opinion. A classic way of avoiding questions is to make your own question, ‘That’s a very good question, but I think the main issue here is….’ But try to answer them because they are very likely to be beneficial. Secondly, the audience can ask questions too. Do not plant a question in the audience; it is obvious and creates a bad impression. © Keel, http://www.ibsurvival.com

    Interesting Topics

    Well its that time of year again, and TOK classes everywhere are working on the dreaded TOK presentation. The very purpose of the TOK presentation has been mocked by the long list of botched presentations (including but not limited to: poor raps, random video clips, insufficient, unprepared rambling, and interpretive dance... yes, it happens), but enough about those. I want to hear about the great TOK presentations that really just made you think about something in a way you haven't before. So far, my favorite TOK topic was one which compared Religiosity and the Gross Domestic Product of nations. They compared the cultures and how different cultures value different things (primarily religion and economic prosperity) with respect to emotion, authority, and reason. It was quite interesting. So what types of interesting topics have you seen presented?
  8. To what extent does knowledge of an historical event affect our behavior? is this a good KQ? Need help with coming up with claims and counter-claims using reason and emotion as AOK
  9. In this document, you can find all the necessary information to help make your PPD amazing!
  10. So, I am willing to make my TOK presentation about young football players from poor countries that are persuaded by big leagues to join them. I feel like I lack the ideas, so far I have this : *ethics : clubs use the fact that the players are poor, so they will be tempted to earn the big money promised to them ; clubs often don't include the fact that not all the players become stars thus rich ; as soon as clubs realise that the player won't be a star, they often lose interest, become less caring etc. (quote - The kids disappear into the anonymity of the nether regions rarely to be heard of again, right now some of these boys are just being traded like horsemeat.) *reason of club : the players from poor countries are easier to sign due to smaller interest than for English stars, they will initially agree to play for a smaller wage due to the fact that even what seems like a small money in Europe (the same applies to the local club - they might sell the next superstar for peanuts, this is a reason why many academies have losses - they spend money in player training but get a small return), might be incredible amount of money for them, it is argued that players are treated, as mentioned before, like horsemeat, because the attitude is rather business-like, the players are trained, then at the first chance sold to even bigger club for the biggest possible profit ; difference with local player - if the player fails to live up to expectations, club won't be blamed for ruining a local potential talent *reason of player : they think it can't really get worse than in their native countries, they go to big leagues due to poverty and willingness to fund their family, which is pretty often not well financed *belief : player has to believe that exactly he will the one emerging as a star, has to have belief in authority - scout/manager ; club has to have belief in the player since it has spent resources in scouting process, paperwork etc. *language : I don't believe there are no language barriers between the, let's say, Italian scout and the African talent ; the scout/manager has to have language skills in order to be able to persuade the player to leave everything in the native country and join the club Different opinions about sales of player: a) player is a slave, he gets sold from one club to another, tempted by money b) a poor player, who would otherwise struggle to make both ends meet, gets a chance to earn big money and is in a way saved Different opinions about the system of transfers: a) One could argue the system is flawed if a club can spend several years investing time and money into a player, only to have another club come in and offer that player a contract with them, when the club who has developed the player are not allowed to offer a deal themselves. b) If one day you have a son and raise him for fifteen years but then your neighbour comes knocking on your door and asks your son if he wants to come and live with him instead, and your son wants to go because this neighbour has a house twice the size of yours, drives a Mercedes (and another one in the garage) and will give him £50 a week pocket money, are you going to let him go? Yes! c) there is a flaw that allows players younger than 18 make such decisions
  11. So I'm still really confused about what exactly we have to do during TOK presentations and how we have to structure it, but one idea that I had was to explore different painting as my real life situation, or that one thing that happened where the two boys put a pair of glasses on the ground of an art gallery and everyone thought it was a piece of art. On e of the ideas I had to do for my KQ was: “To what extent do sense perception and emotion influence the value of art?" If this question good enough to explore to get a high grade? I have some stuff I could take about with it, but it doesn't sound as fancy as some of the ones I've been seeing online as really good. Any help is appreciated!! :)))
  12. Hi everyone! I would highly appreciate it if anyone would like to share their previously done TOK presentations from last year or later. This is the first year that my teacher is teaching TOK and our class kind of needs some presentation videos to see the proper way to present. We've currently seen around 4 videos and none of the presentations were from last year so they're all using the old format. Any recordings of any TOK presentations would really be helpful for our class to learn about making an A grade TOK presentation. I do hope to receive some good presentation videos that my class could see and learn from. Thank you in advance for anyone who sends a link to their presentation. - K
  13. Hey everyone! So for my upcomming IOP in 2 weeks, I am planning to do one on Wide Sargasso Sea. So far I managed to form a thesis of "The author Jean Rhys presents the theme of Alienation through exclusion of the characters in the novel based on race, wealth and status, appearance and shared cultural symbols and values." I chose this thesis primarily after going through interrelationships between the characters of the novel. Primarily, these factors in my thesis are brought through: poverty, appearance (creole). Alienation that leads to destructive acts in the novel - Anette marries mr mason driven by exclusion in society which leads to the loss of her son, home and sanity Daniel Cosway alienated from society obsessed to avenge his step father hurting antoinette's relationship through letters Antoinette is alienated from her own self by madness and her own husband chnages her name (identity affected). Overall, are there any pointers I should work on and I am open to any suggestions for a good hook and better way to incorporate my thesis with my evidence Thanks
  14. Hi everyone I need some help for my TOK presentation and wondering if you could provide some advice. My knowledge questions is How can we know the relationship between Intuition and Genius? My RLS is Einstein's General Theory of Relativity Basically I'm trying to talk about Einsteins claim that intuition is more important than reasoning. Any ideas for claims and counterclaims and what WOKS and TOKS I could use. Thanks once again.
  15. I'm doing my TOK presentation on Trump's decision to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel. I have a couple of KQ's but I'm not sure they entirely relate to the RLS, or if they incorporate every aspect I'm going to be talking about. One of them is: In what ways does authoritative decision affect values and beliefs of groups? Would this be fine? Do yu have any other suggestions?

    TOK presentation

    Hey guys, I'm just confused about something and would like to ask you for advice: How broad does the knowledge question(the main one) in the tok presentation have to be? The two tok teachers in my school have different opinions and I'm really puzzled. Thanks in advance.
  17. Hi everyone! I'm Kathleen and I was wondering if anyone that has already done their exams has any TOK presentations with the TKPPD and score and comments that their teacher and the moderator gave. I am helping my teacher try to find more examples of TOK presentations closer to 2017 since the video that IB has are both from the same school and are from 2012. If anyone would like to share their files with me. I will send you my email. If you wish to keep your name anonymous, you can send it without your name in the TKPPD. I hope to hear from someone soon

    TOK Help

    Hey guys, I'm reviewing my presentation against the assessment rubric and stumbled upon this. "the knowledge question is effectively explored in the context of the RLS" does this mean that I have to refer back to my RLS, after making every claim, or something else?? Any answers would be appreciated.

    TOK finding Claim

    Hello Everybody, I'm struggling in coming up with a claim for my TOK presentation and so thought I could reach out for some help after hours of wordsmithing similar ideas. Could somebody please provide me with their opinion on the tentative claim I have. RLS - Recent Artificial Intelligence has similar thought processes and reasoning to that of a human and so critical thinking is done by the AI. KQ - To what extent does the lack of information encourage critical thinking? Claim 1 : With the presence of limited knowledge, one's curiosity will be challenged thus encourage critical thinking to a greater extent. Thanks,
  21. Working on my presentation topic and I'm interested in working within art. I'd like to discuss the function of language and art within poetry, but when I brought it up to my teacher, he seemed iffy about whether literature falls under art as an AOK. In class, we discussed art mostly in context of visuals -- paintings, sculptures, dance, etc., so I'm just honestly not sure if lit counts. What topic our presentations fall under dictates the week that we present in my class, so I'd prefer to know sooner rather than later what direction I'm going in here. Thanks!
  22. I'm in the middle of planning for my TOK presentation How is this as a potential Question: To what extent is knowledge gained through the natural sciences infallible The real life situation from which this was derived is the series of Korean air crashes in the late 90's specifically the crash in Guam. I was thinking that because of factors such as a lack of sleep in the pilots, the fact that the copilot and pilot were new to working with each other, and that autopilot had been switched off (all considered human errors, relating to the human sciences), it didn't matter how solid the theory behind flying planes is (natural science and knowledge gained through it), the fact that there were human errors made the crashes happen. I'm wondering whether a) this is a good question and b) if an onlooker can understand the question without knowing my background research, and c) what assumptions would I make while making the presentation. Thanks!

    TOK presentation help

    Hi! My class is starting the TOK presentations next week and my topic is assisted suicide. I'm gonna be focusing on how religions affect the ethics of euthanasia. My teacher suggested that I focus on how the different religions came to their own conclusions regarding this. Basically he said that often times students only describe the stances of said religions, not the process behind those stances. Any ideas on how to approach this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    TOK Knowledge Question

    I need help developing a question. My RLS is the ban of transgender individuals to serve for the US military. Please help me with a question
  25. Hello all! So I am beginning my TOK Presentation and I am a bit confused with what to do with my question. My RLS is the Top-Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point and my personal experience in 8th grade riding it. Although a parent somehow persuaded me to get on the ride, I was extremely fearful to the point that I would not look or talk to anyone. Logically, I could have used inductive reasoning to come to the conclusion that I would not get hurt on this ride: no one had ever fallen off, the worst accident was metal flying into a few people's faces which happened only once, and other than that, the most frequent accident was people rolling backwards on the ride. Additionally, I could have had faith in the assumption that the physics of the ride had been tested thoroughly, and thus I was protected. However, I experienced a lack of faith in this reasoning and thus began to fear for my life. After the ride, however, I had so much fun that I realized there was nothing to worry about. A lack of faith had brought me to an incorrect conclusion that I would somehow get hurt. With acrophobia being an extremely common fear among individuals in the world, it seems there is a disconnect in our logic of the safety of rides versus how far we believe in this logic. Without faith, then, this reasoning does not exist, and we are brought to different conclusions. Thus, my knowledge question is this: "To what extent do we need faith to develop our reasoning in the natural sciences?" My teacher said that this was an okay question, but I am still confused on how to go about a question which focuses on a specific area of knowledge. I do not want this presentation to end up being a scientific presentation on what physics or chemistry or biology is and the details of the science, or what not. I do not have clear perspectives yet, but my idea for the first one is that "Without faith, our reasoning is distorted and we are brought to incorrect conclusions." How do I analyze a knowledge question on a specific area of knowledge without it getting too narrow? Thank you for all your help!
